Radically re-styled for 2014, the new Z1000 SE embodies Kawasaki’s sugomi design philosophy, echoing the energy of a predator stalking its prey.
Whilst the sculpted bodywork of the new 2014 Z1000 ABS SE was carefully crafted to bring the aggressive Z design to the next level, the changes to the revised model are more than skin deep. Kawasaki engineers were also determined to further enhance the riding impact offered by the dynamic Super-naked. The new engine and chassis settings deliver a stiffer, more direct ride feel sure to please experienced riders.
This significant step forward in both looks and feels, transforms the Z1000 SE into the market’s most radical Super-naked. Its appearance and performance can be expressed by the word sugomi.
The Japanese word sugomi describes the intense aura or energy given off by a person or object of greatness and felt by the viewer. Someone, or something, possessing sugomi inspires awe, leaves an indelible impression, is imposing in stature or ability, and commands respect. In the new Z1000, sugomi is evident both in its fiercely intense design and the exhilarating performance it delivers, radiating as a palpable energy.
